Abstract

This paper discusses (based on Automotive industry examples) how the functional and requirements traceability concepts in Automotive SPICE had to be extended to cover the criteria and content demanded by ISO 26262. In a second section the paper describes how these new concepts are considered in the integrated Automotive SPICE and Safety assessment approach which was proposed by the SOQRATES initiative (www.soqrates.de) where more than 20 leading German firms collaborate in cross company task forces. See previous papers about the integration approach and assessment method proposed in [4]
